Impressed with e.l.f.

So for the heck of it and because I hear that e.l.f. actually has some pretty good products for the price, I decided to do my first e.l.f. haul. I checked for reviews before I purchased an item off the site to make sure I wouldn't get anything that was flat out disappointing. Every item I bought was priced from $1-$3 and I was so happy about the pricing of their items that I got doubles of a lot of the products. So cheap!!!

I purchased the Eyeshadow "C" Brush ($3)  from their studio line as well as their Complexion Brush($3), which is also from their studio line. I was pretty impressed with the softness of the brushes, I am in love with the "C" Brush. I think I'll order more backups of this brush for sure since it's become the one I reach for the most. I like it better than the Sigma SS239.

Second item I purchased was their Mineral Eyeshadow Primer($3), which I heard was pretty good. I've been using it for a couple weeks and it really does do the job of keeping my eyeshadow there and keeping them from creasing. I will definitely repurchase this just because it is so cheap and it works just as well as my other primers.

Third item I purchased was the Mechanical Eyelash Curler($1). For a buck, its not bad, but my Shu Uemura eyelash curler still performs the best in my opinion. I got two of them so I might keep one curler in my car, at work, etc. just so I have an emergency eyelash curler laying around when I need it, lol.

My next purchases were all blushes/bronzers
Here are the e.l.f. Studio Elushes($3 each):
Left to right, top to bottom:
Blushing Rose, Pink Passion, Candid Coral, Peachy Keen
I realize the camera washed out the colors a bit, because they are darker in person. My favorites are Blushing Rose and Candid Coral and the only ones I would consider repurchasing

-Blushing Rose is a dark rose color with gold shimmer(Looks like a plum color in the pic, but it is not)
-Pink Passion is a matte hot pink, much brighter than in the picture
-Candid Coral is a dark peachy color with golden shimmers
Peachy Keen is a true peach color with golden shimmers, the least pigmented of them all in my opinion.

The last item I purchased was the e.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder($3). This is the item I'm probably the most happiest with aside from the e.l.f. Eyeshadow "C" brush. The bronzer is a beautiful color that does not make you look orange, it's a lovely glowing tan color. It's the only other bronzer I like besides my Too Faced Snow Bunny. The blush is very similar to Candid Coral, but with a stronger gold shimmer. It's just a beautiful healthy peach color. I love love love this product. I can't believe it was only 3 bucks. I will definitely be repurchasing this one as well.
